False Imprisonment

If you are held against your will, and wrongfully so, the person holding you may be liable for the pain and suffering you experience as a result of the imprisonment.

A personal injury attorney can explain to you whether you were wrongfully held; some people can hold you for a reasonable period of time to determine whether you are engaged in wrongdoing, like a police officer or a store owner in some jurisdictions. False imprisonment could be be a good cause of action to discuss with a personal injury case the person who held you has been charged with kidnapping (a criminal charge.)
